Chelsea Threaten No-Show For Next Clash?

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has questioned whether his team should even show up for their next game if another player tests positive for COVID-19.

The Blues reportedly requested that their Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday be postponed due to a number of positive COVID-19 cases and a few injuries.

That request was turned down, and the Blues went on to draw 0-0 with Wolves, but Tuchel only had four outfield players on the bench.

The German tactician has since revealed that he hopes the Premier League will take a break from their schedule as the numbers continue to rise.

"It will hopefully stop but it's more or less hoping. There is nothing else to do," Tuchel said after the game, as per the Daily Mirror.

"If we have the next test and the next positive I would like to speak to the people from the Premier League what they expect.

"Shall we stop and not arrive in the next game if we are made to play?

"When they make us play against Brentford, shall we not arrive? Shall we not train anymore? What shall we do?

"I don't care so much about the next games, I just care about the next tests and the health of the players.

"We were just worried about the safety of players and the players were concerned about their health.

"The Premier League had an opinion and we had a different opinion so we agree to disagree."
